How Do You Do

We talk about a version of the Pareto Principle with my friend Stacie Oliver, a woman who wears many hats in her roles as a professional, a parent, and a coach.  Stacie has one of the fullest schedules of anyone I know, but she can’t stand the idea of being busy. In this episode we talk about how on earth that even works. Stacie recently left her job as a senior professional staff member on the U.S Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to begin another position. She is also a parent to two kids, both with special needs, as well as a military spouse, and those two designations...

How Do You Do

Ricky Pak talks about living the life of a working actor in Los Angeles, as well as #representationmatters. Ricky is Asian American, and has devoted a lot of energy into exploring how film, television and theater can better represent minority groups. We talk a little about what it takes to market yourself in the age of social media, plus the positive and potentially negative effects of box office hits like "Crazy Rich Asians" for Asian actors.

How Do You Do

In addition to audio content, I hope to build a robust written element and video content as well. To kick off the written portion, I introduce the Medium Publication "?" This will include longer essays written by me and hopefully guests in the future. Why Medium? I appreciate the focus the site puts on deep-dive pieces, as well as helping writers find an audience, and new perspectives from others.

Also! We have a bonus reel. As the episode preparations came to a close, I thought of one more person to add to the mix.

Katie Schwarz is a graphic designer, brand strategist, and the creator of Brand Personality Blueprint. She works with entrepreneurs and brands to find the “Why” behind their business and build that message into beautiful design and messaging elements. She has been in the graphic design business for more than a decade, and developed her own brand and Brand Personality Blueprint while raising two small kids and embracing life as a military spouse.

We met at a military spouse mixer and immediately connected, mainly as marketing geeks, and I was struck by her pluck, business story, and her entrepreneurial spirit.
